Converter in the car is flashing at 4500 which is to tight. I need 5200-5500 IMO. My question is will tight converter cause tire spin off the line or will loosening it up make the spin worse.

If the converter is on the tighter side and the car has a tendency to spin the tire, the tight converter does create more wheel speed and will spin the tire harder and faster with less of a chance for the tire to recover. Most of the time getting the converter to flash in the meat of the torque will hit the tire harder and get the car up on the tire and hopefully stay there. This,of course, has a lot to do with chassis and suspension tuning as every car is different with different variables. Hope this helps you out a little.

Made it back to the track this weekend with the newly restalled converter from Lenny and I am impressed! Ran the FFW at Maple Grove and although I went .003 red on first round car a 9.422 on a 9.42 dial. The weekend was made though by the best 60' the car has ever done. 1.306 with several 1.31-1.33 all weekend with not so good weather. Altitude came in at about 1500 ft. The converter worked exactly like Lenny said it should. Lenny you are the man! Thanks again!
